Texas Trip Aborted

Tannehill State Park

Tannehill State Park

We made it as far as Meridian, Mississippi last night.  We hadn’t felt well when we left, but hoped we’d perk up after we got on the road.

Instead, we felt worse and worse.  By the time we got to Twiltney Branch COE north of Meridian (whose only claim to fame was a $10 senior rate), we were full blown sick.  I fell into bed the minute Ron got the trailer unhitched and was out cold until I got up at 9:30 to make sure the dogs had been fed and watered.

Ron was asleep, but there was evidence he had made himself a sandwich and surfed a while before collapsing.

Then this morning I tried three times to get Ron up and he was simply too exhausted to move.

I still felt terrible, and finally had to admit that we didn’t have the energy to make it to Texas.  So we headed back east toward home.

We couldn’t make it all the way, so are holed up at Tannehill State Park just west of Birmingham for a couple of days.  Hopefully by then, we’ll feel like making the drive home.

There is a lot to see at Tannehill, including historic iron works.  If I feel up to it tomorrow, I’ll take photos.
